Hair Loss Q&A

What is hair loss?

Hair loss happens when your hair starts to fall out, often starting out as thinning. Some people experience hair loss in specific patterns like patches or a single spot on the top of the head, while others experience hair loss all over. 

If you’re concerned about hair loss, there are plenty of medical treatments you can consider that promote natural hair growth. The team at The Dermatology Center of Worcester welcomes you for a consultation where they can examine your scalp and determine the cause of your hair loss. They can then make personalized treatment recommendations. 

Why am I experiencing hair loss?

There are multiple reasons why you might be losing your hair, but it’s not always simple to identify the exact cause. The team at The Dermatology Center of Worcester reviews your medical history and might ask questions about when the hair loss started. 

You might experience hair loss due to:

  • Genetics
  • Extreme stress or trauma
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Certain medications and supplements
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Scalp infections
  • Trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder)
  • Harsh hair treatments or tight hairstyles

Some types of hair loss are more treatable than others. It can also be difficult to predict results from hair-loss treatments. You might need to try several approaches before you see any improvement in your natural hair growth. 

How do dermatologists treat hair loss?

At The Dermatology Center of Worcester, the team works with you to find out what’s causing your hair loss and what you can do about it.  Sometimes, biopsies can aide in identifying the underlying cause of your hairloss.  Several medications can treat hair loss, including well-known options like minoxidil and finasteride. Some medications for hair loss are applied topically or are contained within special shampoos and other hair products. Other medications are taken orally.
